The Ramadi laboratory in the Division of Engineering, New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit a postdoctoral associate to join a young energetic lab focused on neuroengineering of the brain and enteric nervous system.
The Ramadi laboratory has recently developed a multi-modal toolkit for neural interfacing including modular brain probes, steerable microneedles, and ingestible devices. The successful applicant will join a number of fascinating projects on engineering novel approaches to modulate neural activity in the brain and gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These projects have a high potential for translation towards treating a variety of neurologic and metabolic disorders. These approaches entail device design and manufacturing, drug conjugation, neuroscience, and preclinical model experiments.
Our laboratory offers multidisciplinary training with a high degree of academic freedom among various high-impact translational projects. The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment consisting of PhD-level scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students, ensuring the candidate learns valuable skills in writing manuscripts and grant proposals, advising fellow researchers, and establishing collaborations across disciplines.
Applicants must have a PhD in an engineering or biomedical-related field. Excellent experimental skills relevant to the project (in particular device design and fabrication, drug conjugation, and in vitro and in vivo experimentation) are required. Proficiency in English is required.
The terms of employment are very competitive with tax free salary, housing and transportation allowance, educational subsidies for children, and health insurance for the employee and their eligible dependents. Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled. For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, statement of research interests and three letters of reference, all in PDF format. If you have any questions, please email Prof. Khalil Ramadi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
